I regret that my opinion of the abilities of web designers is
determined by a single data point....

Just as before print, we had no authors, editors, copy-editors, fact-checkers, catalogers, typographers, or booksellers, but only writers, librarians and readers (usually rolled into one as a "scholar"), it may be that we will soon be seeing whole new categories of work, including both new kinds of designer, and specialists in transformations of structured and semi-structured data sets.

The skills of what we now call a "web designer" -- who may be brilliant communicators in visual media without being particularly good at abstract reasoning -- may or may not be appropriate for much of this work.
